A charming Grade II listed cottage located on the pedestrianised hill overlooking St Leonard's church, with wonderful far-reaching views over the town to the sea.  The property has been beautifully renovated and has contemporary elegant style but maintains its period features and accommodates 3 adults and a child or 2 adults and 2 children.  Downstairs there is a living room looking out onto the church, leading through to the kitchen with a breakfast bar and stools for dining.  On the first floor is the main bedroom with views over the church to the sea and the smaller bedroom to the rear with views over the town to the sea.  The views from the attractive raised courtyard to the rear are stunning and a wonderful place to sip an aperitif and watch the seascape over the rooftops of the town.  Shop: 5 minute walk   Pub: 5 minute walk  Beach: less than 1 mile

What we love about this property: The pretty location on the hillside overlooking the town and the sea with the pedestrianised street and just a few minutes' walk from the High Street with its independent shops and great choice of cafes and restaurants.

Notes: Due to the location of this property on the hillside, it is not suited to those with mobility problems. The church bells are rung for service on Sundays at 9.30am and 6.30pm and for special occasions. Linen, towels and beach towels are included.

Out and About:  Hythe has a number of independent boutiques and gift shops and is a great place for foodies so don't miss a visit to the famous Griggs on the Beach, or a refreshing drink at the Hythe Imperial Hotel. There is also the Michelin starred restaurant Hide and Fox at Saltwood.  Well worth the ride is a trip on the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch miniature railway, great fun for all ages, which terminates at the Dungeness Nature Reserve and lighthouses. Further afield are the coastal towns of Sandgate with its antique shops and Folkestone with the trendy Harbour Arm and old town, not forgetting the UNESCO world heritage City of Canterbury.



We really enjoyed our week stay at Ducks Cottage. It was sparkling clean and very well appointed. We had lovely weather and it was so nice to sit outside on the terrace to eat. Nicola our host was very friendly and accommodating for our visit to Hythe. I would certainly recommend Ducks Cottage and would stay there again .
